Should NFL players contracts be completely guaranteed like Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey players?

    There are no rules preventing it.

    Plenty of baseball contracts have team options also.  It's just reported as a 2 year deal with a team option.  The same contract in football is reported as a 3 year contract.  Both have the same guarantees.

    There’s nothing preventing NFL contracts from being completely guaranteed just like there’s nothing preventing those other sports contracts from not being guaranteed. Difference is the nature of the sport gives the players little leverage for guaranteed contracts in football.

    Not if there's consistency, award and performance bonuses.
